The right paint color can give your laundry room not only a fresh new look, but also make it appear bigger.

A simple and cheap way to give your small laundry room a rustic farmhouse feel is with throw rugs on the floor. Laundry room rugs can not only add splashes of color that tie in with your farmhouse theme, but can also add comfort to an area where you might need to stand for extended periods of time.
Personally, I would never add actual CARPET to my laundry room, but I love having throw rugs and ‘runner’ rugs in front of my washer and dryer.
Farmhouse laundry room signs are also a fun and cheap way to decorate your farmhouse-style laundry room.
I’ve seen some really cute farmhouse laundry room signs here that all seem to be very affordable.
(note: if you’re renting your house or apartment, be sure to use command hooks so you don’t put nail holes in the wall and risk your security deposit)
If your small laundry room has an actual window, well, consider yourself lucky. Most small laundry rooms do NOT have a window so look into farmhouse style light fixtures to brighten the space and tie it in with your decorating theme.
Farmhouse style baskets like these are useful, super pretty AND an inexpensive ways to get those farmhouse touches in those small spaces in your laundry room.
